I sent it in because I was getting hit in the face with the spent casings. One even went down my wife's shirt and left a burn mark. But anyway it took them about 2 weeks to repair. The ejector was replaced with the new style one and they did fire it cause I sent it to them cleaned and could tell it was fired. They were really nice and helpful over then phone and even paid for round trip shipping. Haven't been to the range yet to test it but I just wanted to share my experience so far.

Some gen4s had gen3 ejectors installed in them so that was probably what ur issue was.

Yeah I did my research before I sent it in, so hopefully that will fix the issue. Oh forgot to mention it was a Glock 17 Gen 4.

You have no worries now. The new ejector fixes the issue. All spent shells will go to the right like they are supposed to. Did you already have the 043 spring or did they install it while it was there?{or do the 17's even use the same RSA?}

My experience with them was nothing short of perfect. Enjoy your fixed Gen4 with kick ass grips.:cool:

The new ejector was developed after several failed tries of changing springs. So in reality it's a band aid for the short comings of the new RSA and that freakin bump on the Gen4 trigger bar.

My gen 3 model 22 has an ejector number 1882. The bad Gen 4 ejectors as I understand were numbered 336 with the replacement of 30274.

My test fire date was June 10th of 2011 is mine a replacement style as well?

Sounds like your good to go.

I've only put 300 rounds through mine and its been perfect. My son in laws serial number is 8 over mine, both have the same test fire date and his has 1,100 perfect rounds through it. He had to put 800 threw it while getting used to his BlackHawk surpa holster before they would let him qualify to carry with it. State Certified 7 star reserve, not a 5 star. That means he's had the same education as a full deputy there just are not any openings, so he's on the reserves awaiting his turn.

The 336 is/was a 9mm ejector not a .40. The only thing Glock is doing for .40 is swapping the RSA's on the Gen4's but yours is a Gen3, you shouldn't be having any issues!

That's one thing they are serious about. No gun leaves the factory, whether it's just come in for inspection or had work done, without being test fired. I would think that would be an industry standard practice, but it most definitely is not. :rolleyes:

I'm hoping I get to shoot this weekend. It will also be the first time to shoot with the LWD extended ported barrel on it. I'll post some more comments if I have to chance to go to Bass Pro this weekend.
